I had picked this as the top place to see during the Christmas open house event on Dec. 14, 2014. It exceeded my expectations. The church and grounds are picturesque and still has an active congregation. We were met by people in period dress. The reenactment of the assembly discussion was great. I was pleased to read that they do... More

"Give me liberty or give me death!" Everyone knows the immortal words of Patrick Henry by heart. But not as many know the place and circumstances of his inspiration that literally changed the course of history and led to the creation of the greatest nation on earth. And so a trip to St. John's Church is an absolute MUST for... More

This is where Patrick Henry made his famous "Give me liberty" speech, and reenactments are done on a regular basis. I first saw this in 1969, and haven't been disappointed in the reenactment since! This is a good place for people of all ages to visit and learn about our rich history. The church itself is quaint and well maintained,... More

We have been to St. John's Church before. I consider it among the most inspiring sites in Richmond. This is an active church serving its congregation since 1741.The parish was established in the 1600's. In the village of Richmond, it was the only adequate size meeting place for the leaders of Virginia to meet secretly without the interferance of the... More

The influential American forefathers that worshiped under this church roof is mind boggling and humbling. The incredible sacrifices and risks they took to found our country really moved me beyond words, especially Patrick Henry. The tour guides were excellent.

My family and I visited St. John's Episcopal Church today for a Veteran's Day special reenactment. We arrived early to get in line; there was a volunteer outside sharing information about the church's graveyard and people of note that are buried there. From his information we toured the graveyard after the reenactment. Franklin Military Academy presented the colors, and music... More

My friend and I just happened to visit this Church on a Monday. It's a small church, with a small gift shop. The folks in the gift shop asked if we wanted a tour for $7. We weren't going to go, but then we overheard another visitor say it was supposed to be really good. And it was! The man... More
